After prolonged drama with Barnes & Noble, I finally got my copy today. It's prett-y, prett-y, prett-y, prett-y good! I love it!

Tony Buttler had done an excellent job once again.

I think Specialty Press just had a sell where if you bought ASP Vol 1 and Vol 2, you got 30% off.

That was for the recent books from Alan Griffith/Tony Buttler and Craig Kaston/George Cox.

Enjoy the Day! Mark

yes, I know, but I don't want the book "used", and the new ones are a little bit pricey.
I have most of the other books but somehow I missed the release of that one. :(

According to Tony Buttler there will be new updated editions of both in a couple of years.
I am currently reading US airlifters 1941-61 by Cox and Kaston. After reading that, one would hope for a similar 2 volume work just for us bombers and attack aircraft as well

Tony Buttler has self-imposed limits on what should be included in his books, which is he generally includes only the final version of a design submitted to a requirement but not the various prior versions unless they are particularly interesting.
